The various clerk of courts offices in the Twelfth District may or may not be open depending on whether those counties observe the Columbus Day holiday on October 14.

Questions regarding the observation date of the Columbus Day holiday by the clerks' offices should be directed to the individual clerk of each county within the Twelfth District. Their holiday schedule may not be the same as the Court's central office.
